Delivering high-end computing systems and services to NASA's aeronautics, exploration, science, and space technology missions.
REQUESTING COMPUTING TIME AT NASA
If you are a NASA-sponsored scientist or engineer, computing time is available to you at the High-End Computing (HEC) Program's NASA Advanced Supercomputing (NAS) Facility and NASA Center for Climate Simulation (NCCS).
- 02.12.21 - Transition to RMS from eBooks for ARMD, HEOMD, STMD, NESC on February 26
- On February 26, the following Mission Directorates will transition from the eBooks web-based management tool for requesting and managing access to HEC resources to a new tool called the Request Management System (RMS): Aeronautics Mission Directorate (ARMD), Human Exploration and Operations Mission Directorate (HEOMD), Space Technology Mission Directorate (STMD), and NASA Engineering and Safety Center (NESC).
HEC NEEDS ASSESSMENT
- 01.19.21 - 2020 HEC Needs Assessment Report Now Available
- The NASA High-End Comuting (HEC) Needs Assessment report documents the HEC users’ needs raised during a virtual workshop that took place June 1–19, 2020 in terms of computing capacity, technology, services, human resources, and programmatic. The HEC Program will use the information to develop future investment and program implementation strategies.
- 02.22.21 - GMAO Science Snapshots Look at Drought and Fires
- Supported by NASA Center for Climate Simulation (NCCS) resources, NASA’s Global Modeling and Assimilation Office (GMAO) calculated 1. the impact of regional U.S. drought on land and atmospheric carbon and 2. fire emissions in the Northern Hemisphere extratropics during 2020.
- 02.17.21 - NASA-funded Network Tracks the Recent Rise and Fall of Ozone Depleting Pollutants
- A short-lived resurgence in the emission of ozone depleting pollutants in eastern China will not significantly delay the recovery of Earth’s protective “sunscreen” layer, according to new research published Feb. 10 in Nature. Supporting computations with the NASA 3D GEOS Chemistry Climate model ran at the NASA Center for Climate Simulation (NCCS).
- 02.16.21 - High-Performance Supercontainers Show Promise for Earth System Prediction
- Using an NCCS supercomputer and other high-performance computing platforms, the multi-agency Joint Center for Satellite Data Assimilation (JCSDA) successfully demonstrated software “supercontainers” for its next-generation Joint Effort for Data assimilation Integration (JEDI) system.
- 02.10.21 - NASA Summer Intern Combines Data Science and Astronomy – with Stellar Results
- Adam Friedman, a 2020 summer intern at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, analyzed a deluge of data on the brightness changes of over 70 million stars using the Discover supercomputer and Advanced Data Analytics PlaTform GPU Cluster at the NASA Center for Climate Simulation (NCCS).
- 02.10.21 The GMAO Supports Field Campaigns During a Challenging Year
- Despite an unpredictable 2020 for planning airborne and ship-based field campaigns, the Global Modeling and Assimilation Office (GMAO) was still able to support a number of missions that required specialized products. GMAO forecast models and visualization portals run at the NCCS.
